Jade has been a longtime fan of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and confessed to fans she got seriously starstruck when she met the man himself back in 2017.

Alongside a picture of the two, she wrote at the time, ‘here I am pretending to act cool whilst hyperventilating inside. Along with Diana Ross, @rupaulofficial has inspired me as an artist and performer, whilst giving me the confidence in myself I never knew I had. #ifyoucantloveyourself #howinthehellareyougonnalovesomebodyelse #AMEN 👑💛’.

The meet up happened while she was still with now ex-boyfriend Jed Elliot, and she praised him for being so understanding in another post.

‘Pouring my heart out to Mama Ru! this photo was taken by my boyfriend who had organised a surprise day out for me which we ended up missing because we spent too long at@rupaulsdragcon?

‘I flew to LA for two nights to spend rare quality time together and he didn’t moan once about me dragging (lol) him around for hours while making him take pictures of me fangirling all day. We all need a @jedstruts in our lives ♥

‘Ps I did wake up at 8am to watch the Arsenal game with him so we’re kinda even ?’
